Talks on future of Tesco store after riot
Tuesday 26 April 2011
The future of the Tesco Express at the centre of a riot in Bristol last week is to be assessed today.
A meeting – which will involve officials from Tesco, police officers and council members – will consider whether the store should reopen.
A final decision is not expected until next month. The store in Cheltenham Road remained closed yesterday.
The violence happened after police raided a property opposite the store which had been occupied by anti-Tesco protesters.
Campaigner Claire Milne said she would lobby all parties to ensure "Tesco ceased trading in Stokes Croft".
